Re: John and Sherlock Drunk

I love this sequence and how Sherlock loses himself to it. I get the impression that he doesn't drink beer often, but that he does have it sometimes because he's drinking it so easily. I like how they get back to Baker Street and move onto the hard liquor while playing the game. We already know from Baskerville that Sherlock does consume the occasional whisky, so I'm guessing he's one who likes the odd drink but not to the point of drunkedness.

The drunk deductions kill me every time (egg? chair? sitty thing? sleeeeeeeeeeep). The vomiting scene, while revolting, gets a chuckle for the prim way Sherlock wipes his mouth after. And it's probably clear from my signature that clueing for looks is my new favourite expression. Another one I like is Sherlock apologizing for his "thing", which was Benedict forgetting his line while staying in character and the director making the smart decision to keep the line in the show!

I also have to comment on Mrs. Hudson the next morning after as she reveals that she made the boys their favourite breakfast for their hangover. John's is a standard English breakfast. As for Sherlock, his is a little surprising: egg, ham, pineapple, and chips. *blinks*

(This sequence brings back fun memories of the pub crawl to end all pub crawls on Edinburgh's Royal Mile. No matter how you can plan to just get buzzed, there gets a point where you're buzzed enough for all bets to be off. I still can't believe I didn't wake up in jail!)

Re: John and Sherlock Drunk

I´m surprised that Sherlock being drunk once, involuntarily, developed to such an issue here. Isn´t England the country with a long tradition of weekend pub crawls? Where men like Winston Churchill, a stong drinker, were successful politicians and it didn´t hurt their reputation the least? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
 As for Sherlock being not in his best form while solving cases – he was in a much worse state in Jeremy Brett´s version and he still successfully solved his case: http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vipgpbtg4xY And because his clients are polite Englishmen, they probably didn´t mention his slight „indisposition“ to anybody. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: John and Sherlock Drunk

I think the issue is not just about Sherlock simply being drunk but about all the implications of these scenes. You sometimes cannot believe they did not read some of the relevant fanfics. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: John and Sherlock Drunk

Yes. She came definitely in the wrong moment. As did Mrs Hudson in ASiB, by the way (at least this is
what Irene must have thought).

Yes, anyone can just come and go... like Lestrade at the beginning of ASiP. This must definitely stop. Okay, first John has to move into 221B again, then the locks and keys. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: John and Sherlock Drunk

I didn't worry at all about getting Sherlock drunk. He's not an alcoholic, so getting shitfaced for one evening wouldn't be worse for him than anyone else.

Love the stag night scene, insanely funny! "Clueing for looks", I lose it every time.

Re: John and Sherlock Drunk

443.7 millilitres…
I've always found this particular number particularly striking, and after thinking about it for a while (the universe is never so lazy…) I made a funny - of course completely useless - observation.
 
The simple division exercise:
 
443.7 : 2 = 221.85
 
made me translate the result into
 
443.7 is twice 221.B (sort of)
 
which, of course, has to mean nothing else but Sherlock's unspoken wish of him and John being - and staying! -together in 221B – a manifestation clearly visible in each of the boys' glasses.
"There's a double reminder – twice 221B – in your glass, John, which I scientifically worked out to be the best for you (and me). But, of course, as ever you see but don't observe…"
